Book Review: Select Cases and Other Authorities on the Law of Trusts, 41 Yale Law Journal 786 (1932)


THE original edition of this popular casebook is herein thoroughly and skillfully revised. One has the impression that each item-almost every word- has been carefully selected and arranged, not merely in the choice of the cases and the construction of the footnotes, but also in the editing of the decisions printed, which have been vigilantly pruned. Perhaps the study of the subject is thus somewhat over-simplified. Perhaps, however, this is counterbalanced by the increase in enthusiasm for reading that able guidance and absence of irrelevancies may well produce. Variations from the first edition, however, while important, are chiefly in details; no substantial departure from its fundamental assumptions is apparent.
